    You are an enhanced super-soldier, the ultimate killing machine developed through nanotechnology, and that fact is fleshed out during gameplay- you can do all the things that you would expect you could do. [April 2013]

    Crytek's last work is an excellent product. Crysis 3 on PC offers an awesome gaming experience, thanks to stunning graphics and a fast paced gameplay.

    On the PC, Crysis 3 is certainly better compared to the console versions, with Cry Engine 3 able to give the game true visual splendor, without asking for exorbitant hardware resources.

    A self-assured but largely unambitious game, content to refine the experience of the previous games in the series without deviating very far from the standard that they set.

    Crysis 3 is stunning to look at, successfully portraying an uneasy partnership of the natural and the artificial. As the story presses on, the conflict deepens and the visuals darken; it's as if you can feel the evil spreading throughout the city. As a piece of technology, Crysis 3 lives up to the series' legacy. As a game, it doesn't reach the same heights.

    Crysis 3 looks stunning and ticks all the right boxes, but the game doesn't do enough to distinguish itself in order to earn the higher marks.

    Crysis 3's campaign disappoints; its story isn't compelling, the storytelling itself doesn't help it, the level design remains an ordinary one, the difficulty is not well-balanced, and overall, there's no real risk taken creatively at any point in it. It's a game of appearances without substance; visually strong, but that's it. The multiplayer kind of saves the deal, most notably thanks to the Hunter mode.

Just finished the single player campaign and really enjoyed it. I tried to play this game for the PS3 and thought it was so terrible that I quit. However the PC version (on a good pc) looks amazing and it worth the play through. Lots of different options for combat but the game favors stealth. Suit options add a lot of enjoyment to the gameplay. The war that takes place during the game is beautiful to watch. I spent much of the game just looking around amazed by what was happening around me. However, the game will leave you wanting more. Still have to give a thumbs up and I regret not playing it earlier.

    Slight improvement over the previous Crysis game but I just wasn't very impressed. I miss the open world and destruction of the original Crysis.

    The worst flaw, storytelling. I felt no connection to the character. I played the final boss just to finish the game, short btw.

    Nice graphics (could be even better) but at medium details still looks really nice, great optimization. The guns are also really nice and well implemented, as the game play. The music is absolutely awesome.
    I expected a lot more from Crytec. The original one is really good.

    This game is the worst single player game I have ever played, I hope they never make another game.
    First of all story, empty and meaningless, you almost forget what you are doing. Mediocre character introduction, seriously garbage. Go there, shoot this, kill this etc. All the time the same thing. Boring game.
    Gunplay is laughable, even in the time of this game release it was outdated.
    Now about engine of this game and those missions. To the person that thought about this plane mission where you shoot planes with canon, and I don't know why your sensitivity is below zero. You have to freaking race your mouse to move this crosshair. First time programmers? How thought about this menu design. ESC closes whole menu rather going one step back.
    This is the first time a video games pisses me off. It's the worst thing I have ever played. Crysis 3 took the first place on my worst video game list. Second close is another garbage Crysis 1 with "1 core optimized engine". Not recommended.
